RIP Isao Tomita

Isao Tomita, Japanese pioneer of synthesizer music, dies at 84

(the video on that page is in Japanese but has English subtitles)

Listened to The Planets many, many times ... amazing adaptation.

Indeed a sad loss to the cultural world. Such a major influence in music and other fields. RIP Isao Tomita.

You can be sure I will look for new material to add to the Moon from this Master of electronic music.

Re: RIP Isao Tomita

Thanks Art for making us aware of this. It is indeed a loss for us all.

I really liked his Pictures at an Exhibition. He had a unique way of interpreting music.

And he created some incredible sounds from a Moog!

RIP Isao Tomita.

Regards from Texas,
Ted
